Very nice!!
On the colour variation, I noticed on twitter a colour variation on the Sofubi pill bug (012A). But have not seen it anywhere else.



And above left the variation you were looking for..


and this one. I found out that the variation is NOT called 'B' but the number 010 (in the salamander's case) without addition.
It seems the colour variations are limited editions. It is for sale in the Kaiyodo museum I think.  You can do a search on Yahoo auctions ;-)

 :D Ah! Just as I have suspected. Thanks for the info, Beetle guy.
      I think I'll have to get me the colour variant too.
